I am very glad I got to see Kristen as MJ. She didn't understudy anyone in Wicked, so I had never really been exposed to her as a singer or actress, only as a dancer in the ensemble. She was really phenomenal up there, her voice is very pretty and strong. I loved hearing her sing. She is a very solid actress as well, and held her own up there with the leads who do their roles every day. She and Reeve Carney acted off each other well and harmonized with ease. She was also the sweetest person to talk to at the stage door, standing outside in a drizzle talking to me for 10 minutes (because I had so many questions about Wicked). I would love to see her in more leading roles, even if she understudied them, because I think she has a lot of talent that hasn't really been exposed yet!
